Coping with Allergies During Pregnancy

Coping with Allergies During Pregnancy

A woman’s pregnancy is a beautiful and exciting time in her life, full of anticipation and hope. But for some women who suffer from allergies, it can also be a time of pain and discomfort. When a woman is pregnant, allergies can be especially hard to deal with because she cannot take medication to ease the symptoms. If you’re one of the many pregnant women who struggle with allergies, here are some ways to deal with it.

What can I do to ease symptoms in a natural way?

The first step in dealing with allergies while pregnant is to figure out what irritates you and causes your symptoms. Pollen, dust mites, mould pet, dander, and certain foods are some of the most common allergens. Once you know what makes your allergies worse, you can take steps to prevent them from happening or at least ease your symptoms. This could mean avoiding certain foods, using CERTIFIED asthma & allergy bedding, keeping dogs out of the bedroom, and purifying the indoor air to remove airborne triggers.

During pregnancy It’s also important to drink enough water because being dehydrated can make allergy symptoms worse. Drink a lot of water and stay away from caffeine which can dehydrate you. If you’re having trouble staying hydrated, try herbal teas, coconut water or sports drinks that are high in electrolytes.

Natural treatments are another way to deal with allergies during pregnancy as over-the-counter medications are not an option for pregnant women, unless consulted with a GP. This limits ways in which you can control your symptoms. The good news is that there are products that can help you ease allergy and hay fever symptoms in a natural way.

Some natural remedies include…

  • Put Vaseline around your nostrils to help trap pollen.
  • Wear wraparound sunglasses to stop pollen getting into your eyes.
  • Shower and change your clothes after you have been outside to wash pollen off.
  • Stay indoors on high pollen days
  • Invest in an air purifier for cleaner indoor air.
  • Keep windows and doors shut as much as possible.
